's been polling and not only did he denounce george w. bush but those democrats who went for the radical regulation. he was very clear about that. and he's populous. what romney has recognized there is real pain out there and people want something done. if obama is more of the same, he's in trouble. >> eliot: look, mitt romney is appeal to go folks right now to folks whose logic is give me something different. the burden is on the president is to say yes but the something different that he's offering is the same george w. bush that was offered in the first place. he does not close the circle. i want to make this point. the adcdos who came out and said you have to raise taxes. does that puncture the balloon of the entirety of the logic of mitt romney. >> it may puncture it if you want to analyze this in logical terms. >> eliot: you're not saying logic is not in politics. >> i don't think it is right now. you may have fired an aide who wrote a speech like that. i think romney is quite wise not to. the banality of what he says is central. he does not want to spell out what he's going to say

the election, and four days after the tape came out in 2004, george w. bush went on to beat john kerry in the presidential election that year by less than three points. there is, thankfully, no chance of osama bin laden releasing a videotape this year, because he is dead as a door nail. but we did have an october surprise of a different sort this year. with this giant devastating storm hitting the most densely populated part of the united states. and it really is almost no precedent in american politics for something this large happening outside the political sphere, something this large happening this close to when we vote in an election that is this close. there are only a couple of other instances in our history when anything like this has happened. lots of people, of course, are asking how this disaster on the east coast could affect our election. honestly, the answer is we do not know. there is not enough relevant historical precedent to study in order to come up with a historically well-informed answer to that question. the sample size is just too small. we cannot say at this poi
press secretary under president george w. bush. hello to both of you. >> your setup there looks fantastic. democracy plaza looks great. >> i wish you were here to see it. they have been working so hard on this. i could go on an on. we have details to get to. people ice skating. it's just cool. but let's talk about a couple of different ideas here, karen, with you. two respected political analysts have widely divergent predictions for the election. nate silver gives the president an 84% chance of winning and says he'll get 305 electoral votes. flip side mitt romney will be winning with 315 electoral votes. does anyone know what's going to happen? >> no, of course not. this is why i love politics. and this is why i love the pollsters. they try to apply science and data that predict. we're talk about human beings. and human behavior is unpredictable. we can have a sense of what we think is going to happen. the numbers i've been looking at are some of the early vote numbers. for example if you look at some of of these battle ground states and the number of people who have already vo
with some of the language and so forth and back away but he was pretty close to george w. bush. president bush felt that billy graham made a tremendous difference in his life in a personal way in terms of his faith in helping rescue his life. i think he was pretty close to president george w. bush, as well. is not spoken a lot in terms of campaign literature but i think there has been some issues out there among evangelicals and some skepticism about governor romney's mormon faith and i think billy graham's blessing is an important signal that it is ok to vote for a mormon. there have been full page ads and so forth. i think that is a very important thing in terms of the romney folks for billy graham to give that signal. host:rob christensen is with us. he is talking to us from raleigh and you can read more of his writings at news observer.com. we want to get more input and conversation going with some of our viewers and listeners. in order to do that, pick up the phone or send us a message -- we have a special line for folks calling from north carolina -- you can also send us e-mails --
absolutely care. barack obama said george w. bush signing statements and he made the executive branch too powerful, but it turns out he didn't have a problem with executive orders and signing statements, he had a problem with who was doing it. we and independents in florida want a president who will stay within the parameters of the legitimate authority of the presidency. president obama is not pressing independents in florida by running on bill clinton's record and blaming george w. bush. independents are saying, what about your record, mr. president. >> we'll talk a lot more about the undecided states of america not hour. be sure to stay with us for that. we'll talk about new hampshire, the four electoral votes there could really be the difference in this historically close race. >>> this is a story that has a lot of people. we have the latest on malala, the 15-year-old girl shot by the taliban. s everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all
terms as wisconsin governor and was george w. bush's secretary of health and human services. she's 50, openly gay and a 14-year veteran of the house of representatives. up for grabs is the senate seat left open by retiring democrat herb cole which republicans desperately want to help them win a majority. >> i'm tommy thompson. >> reporter: both sides are pooring in cash, a state record $40 million has been spent so far on this election. almost three-fourths coming from groups that aren't directly associated with the candidates but are very interested in the outcome. >> you can't turn on your tv right now without running into ads for tammy and tommy. >> reporter: daniel bice has been covering wisconsin politics for more than 20 years. this race he says is all about attacking the opponent. >> she's trying to define thompson as someone who was a good governor but no longer supports the interests of wisconsin. >> tommy thompson, he's not for you anymore. >> he's trying to define her not as the nice tammy baldwin that you see on tv but as an extreme liberal who votes in a way people in wis
as well. and of course he brags how he has done more drilling than george w. bush. which is true. now here is president obama talking about in the second presidential debate about how great he is at oil drilling. >> obama: we have increased oil production to the highest levels in 16 years. natural gas production is the highest it's been in decades. we have seen increases in coal production. >> romney: more drilling, more permits and licenses. >> obama: yes, we still continue to open up new areas of drilling. we continue to make it a priority for us to go after natural gas. >> romney: we're going to bring that pipeline in from canada. how in the world the president said no to that pipeline, i will never know. >> obama: we have opened up public plans. we're drilling more on public lands than the previous administration and the previous president was an oil man. >> romney: more drilling and more permits and licenses. >> obama: we made the largest investment in clean coal technology. >> romney: in the last four years you cut lances on federal land and waters in half. >> obama: not true. >> rom
if he was being honest going all the way back to george h.w. bush in 1992, the republicans take a run into that state at the last minute. and they never carry that state. there are fundamental structural problems for them in pennsylvania. i think that what's happened here -- >> they're putting a -- >> he can't carry ohio. he can't crack ohio so he's searching for pennsylvania. >> hold on, buddy. unlike past years, look, i understand there have been saints, particularly in 2008, into pennsylvania, which makes no sense at all. i happen to agree with you. now a fortune from superpacs is being put into pennsylvania and being followed up on the ground with romney going there. bob shrum, that's what makes it more interesting. and i want to let ed continue. that's what makes it more interesting. >> you know, in pennsylvania they elected a republican senator in 2010 and they've got a republican governor. so it's not completely foreign territory. >> 2010. a presidential year are quite different. and you know it, ed. >> that's right. it's been tough for us since 1988. but that said, it's in pla
around george w. bush who had been in the presidency just less than a year after winning a very hotly contested and contentious election. and the country coming together. and we're seeing that to a lesser extent right now play out on the east coast of new jersey and new york. >> thank you so much. i greatly appreciate -- go ahead, i'm sorry, keith, we're almost out of time, i'm sorry. >> i think it also shows the collapse of mitt romney's support mechanism in some ways. not that chris christie's abandoning him, but you also have bob mcdonnell of virginia who praised obama, said the fema response was incredibly quick. and also, you had gm and chrysler auto executives both coming out and condemning mitt romney. so the people who should naturally be supporting mitt romney in the last week of the campaign, they're actually supporting barack obama. and that's got to hurt. >> all right. thank you so much. i really appreciate y'all coming on. we'll see you in the next few days. thank you. >>> and developing news right now that we just referenced, janet napolitano is on the ground right now i

if you think the same thing? >> george w. bush tried to propose bipartisan immigration reform. it was sunk. >> that is just not tree to say it was both parties. labor always opposed these, did the tough thing, bit down, went to their members, members that are suspicious of this and sold them that bill. this is mccain/kennedy. in 2008, when the candidates were running, john mccain took his name off the bill. it's not true it was killed by both parties. >> let's talk about what barack obama has done. he hasn't proposed a plan. one thing that comes out of the book is president obama doesn't enjoy the policy negotiations with congress. itis not his thing. >> why wuld you enjoy that? you would have to be a masochist to enjoy that. >> it's how you pass it. bill clinton did enjoy it. maybe he was a masochist. >> he was impeached. >> exactly. that's what he got for it. >> you have to get into the nitty gritty and have those policies. >> let me ask you about this. romney, we all saw him get up there and take the wood to rick perry in the primaries on immigration. you want to spend $100
on to win the presidency. john quincy adams rutherford b. hayes, benjamin harrison, and george w. bush. look at what "the war room" researchers found looking at the 2008 presidential election. in wyoming there were 240,000 voters for its three electoral voters. 240,000 for its three electoral. that's about 83,000 voters per electoral votes. in california there were 12 million voters for its 55 electoral votes. do you know what that breaks down to, 220,000 voters per electoral vote. is anyone wondering why wyoming voters are three times as important as california voters? well that's a good question. joining us now is a woman who wants to fix this unfair balance in the electoral college system. laura brode with an organization known as national popular vote. it works to have the president elected by popular vote. welcome to "the war room"." >> thanks so much for having me. >> jennifer: so you're republican, i think and your party's platform includes this stance on electoral college reform. we recognize that an unconstitutional effort to impose national popular vote would be a mortal threat to
before the election in 2008 and he lost. the same plan and same result for george w. bush in 2004 and bob dole in 1996. >>> let's check out florida and that's where we find, long, long lines. some people waited in line as long as five hours to cast their early vote. today is the last day for early voting. we'll take you live to florida next hour. how close is the race there? take a look. this poll shows president obama with a slim slelead, 49-47. >>> both campaigns are finding some talking points to drive home their closing arguments. here it is. unemployment ticked up to 7.9% while the economy added 171,000 jobs in october. that's more than most expected. earlier, i spoke with bill gross who runs the world's biggest mutual fund pinco if these numbers are enough to move voters and the markets. >> i'm not sure it is, victor. actually, the election may hinge on the length of gas lines in new jersey and new york on monday as opposed to the number of jobs announced on friday. in any case, the job creation number is sufficient going forward to certainly level the unemployment rate and, ultimat
with resistance by republicans. contrast that to george w. bush. his major initiatives, war in iraq, medicare part d and no child left behind had substantial democratic support. in no child left behind, the leading liberal in the senate ted kennedy joining with president bush to push no child left behind. contrast that to the way the republicans treated barack obama and you see the total hypocrisy of that claim. >> governor, philadelphia aside obama's biggest drop off has been among middle to upper class suburban women. why do you think that is? you know the state. >> because the economy is not doing well. pennsylvania's economy has taken a nose dive since i left. when i left -- well truth is truth. when i left we were 7.4% unemployment, almost two points below the national average. we're now above the national average by a third of a point. so, it's significant. but the economy has not done well and suburban women are conscious of the economy. you'll know right away in pennsylvania, you don't have to look far to see whether this will be a close race. just look at the turnout in philadelphia. if t
does he bring up the, well you remember when president george w bush took off with the sur plus and -- surplus. do people even care at this point? they say i don't care. my wallet is at a deficit. >> i don't know that most people are particularly interested with what the economy is like. is like four or eight years ago. it is exactly as you say. how am i doing now, and how am i going to do in the future as opposed to if you got it worse from bush. he is not running against bush. he is running against romney who staked out his own territory. ii think he has to address the economy right now and going forward. and then excuses don't really sell at this point. >> susan, you always break it down with great analysis and perspective. we do appreciate you. want to remind everybody that you can read her syndicated column in newspapers across the country every wednesday and friday. >>> right now hurricane sandy is bearing down on the east coast. the impact from the monster storm is expected to stretch for hundreds and hundreds of miles as it makes its way up the coast. are you prepared? c
-organized campaigns that we've seen in recent memory was the 2004 george w. bush campaign. karl rove engineered a very impressive, microtargeting effort, where they started to integrate people's consumer preferences with their voting data to try to more precise -- so instead of just saying, ok, we're going to target everyone that we know is, say, a latino woman, you can actually individually start to target people based on what kind of car they drive, or what kind of cereal they eat, or all kinds of little factors that the people know from, you know, when you fill out surveys or when you buy things, that kind of thing. the obama campaign did that even more impressively in 2008, and they've been building on that ever since. so they've built a really formidable sort of digital, integrated data-targeting effort, that they then have put together with this vast network of field offices on the ground and neighborhood teams and volunteers and through facebook and everything else, so they know practically who all of their voters are, the millions and millions of people that they expect or hope they can drive
a solemn occasion of honoring the 9/11 victims to promote the george w. bush political agenda. it offended many of the survivors and first responders. i felt i needed to stand up. >> i never questioned her patriotism. i question your judgment. only 22 people voted against it. every person from wisconsin voted for it, including nancy pelosi. everyone voted for it except 22 people. it bothered me because i was there helping out. if you talk to george pataki and mayor rudy guiliani, they say i was a force of nature because i was up there so often helping people get things. congress did not give the appropriations, but it was not because we did not try. the federal government -- she did not appropriate the money. congress did not appropriate the money. and why they did not get the treatment. bus bay put a restriction in asked who could get it. if we could have given more money out to more people, we would have. not only did she voted against this, she voted against the a ahmadinejad. all except three individuals condemned him. tammy baldwin voted against the sanctions. i don't question their p
